150 Years of Rudolf Diesel

One day my intuition lead me to the Bürgerhaus where I found information celebrating the 150th birthday of German inventor Rudolf Diesel. Yes, Diesel is the inventor of the diesel engine. He first tested his engine using peanut oil. The city of Augsburg, Germany is hosting a city-wide event museum exhibits, German Technology Day, films etc.. It was in Augsburg that Diesel and his team of engineers developed the diesel engine. It’s no wonder that Raps as a basis for alternative fuel, known as Straight Vegetable Oil and for bio-diesel would thrive here in Germany. To see more photographs on Biofuels, please go here

Yes in my former life in California, this is the transportation that took me on many an assignments that ran on biofuels made from soybeans.
